Byron Track & Field

Week of April 11th, 2016

Volunteers needed Please

We have home track meets on April 12th, April 15th and April 19th. It makes for a very crazy and hectic 8 days. We need all the volunteers we can get. There are (5) field events that each need a judge and a distance recorder. We also need helpers in the concession stand as well as on the finish line. Please message me on facebook or at (989) 277-8111 if you can help.

We live in Michigan: be prepared for ANY and ALL weather.
